Greetings to all of you wonderful, water fasting experts and and giving souls! I have done all sorts of fast in the past but this is only my second water fast. My first was for 9 days. Today, I'm on day 16 and going. I've suffered from Candida since 1995 and have tried many modalities but as you know candida is very resilient. I'm having a bowel movement almost daily. Even though what comes out is mostly candida strings and tiny small hardened feces and mucous. I understand that as long I'm experiencing detox effects like that it's advisable to keep going at least till it subsides. I'm hoping to complete 21 days of fasting. I have 2 questions, however. How soon can I start on Probiotics after breaking my fast? I'm thinking since the Candida has at least been weekend to take the chance right away and combat it even more with probiotics.
My second question is about refeeding. I'm craving pickles big time. Cucumber, carrot and lemon pickles especially. How soon after breaking the fast can I have those? Also I'm not craving fruit or juice so much as I'm needing vegetable broth to break my fast.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
Thanks again so much for all your help:)
